I have a friend who owns Skidmore Inc (http://www.skidmorestudio.com/we/index.html). – a creative agency in Royal Oak, MI.  She had one of her designers mock up this save the date for us.  The designers name is Libby Cole and she is available for freelance work (libby.cole@gmail.com) – we loved being recognized as “the couple on the fridge” by friends of friends as we made our way to the big day.

Save the Date + invites: Katie + Ben

Yay for Save the Date week!  I thought we’d kickstart it with a bang….I’m pretty obsessed with these amazing Save the Date and invitation from Katie!  Those custom made tubes are so beyond cool!

Ben and I met at Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and dated for about 7 years before we got married. He was a design major, and I was a photographer. Ben was in charge of making a lot of the event posters while we were at school and when we would talk about getting married, we often said, wouldn’t it be cool if we did a show poster? So, fast forward a few years, Ben proposed after a Mark Kozelek show, and we began our 4 months of planning (engaged in June, married in October). When I thought about our stationery (I am a designer at Chellé Paperie) I thought about all the things that made us who we are, and I thought about pushing the envelope in print, since it is rare that I have clients who let me do such crazy things. I knew I wanted to do a mailing tube, and a book. Ben knew he wanted to do a poster – those work well together, so we set to work. In designing the suite, we made a list of important things in our lives, and we made them into silohuettes to create a graphic pattern that wrapped the guest addressed mailing tube, and lined the end pages of our invitation book (http://chellepaperie.com/custom/wedding/clear-eyes-full-hearts/) We joked about sending an invite that says we like to party – but then we decided wait, we do like to party, and we’d like to party with you. It was kind of awesome, and it still makes me smile! We did a custom map for my hometown, we wrote silly copy, and we fought over typefaces. We’re both designers and though it was a little frustrating at the time, I think we challenged each other and ultimately ended up with a perfect design that reflects our personalities, the tone of the event, and the light-hearted feel of our wedding. We did the whole wedding for under $5000 in a matter of 4 months. It was awesome, and I would do it again every year if I could. My favorite thing about the wedding (aside from marrying the man of my dreams of course) was that we got to create an experience, for ourselves and for our guests, that was different from any other wedding that any of us had been to. We wanted it to be as much of a celebration of all the guests, as it was about our marriage, and it really turned out that way. It was perfect, and full of love.
